According to Forrester Research, "the tools and principles of service design should be common practice in the board room within 10 years". The vast majority of managers surveyed consider customer experience as the most important battle ground for competitive advantage.

The process of designing services is very specific to each individual business. However, discovering what people actually want and value, is a universal process. This process of discovery is the subject of this book.

Service design, by organizing business from the customer's perspective, can help save considerable amounts of money in marketing while at the same time building a stronger brand. Hence the title: How to Have Your Cake and Eat It Too.

There are only a handful of books about service design on the market. One of the leading titles is BIS Publishers' This is Service Design Thinking. But these books are either quite academic or they cover the subject in an all encompassing way and are therefore more suited for the service design practitioner than for the general business reader. How to Have Your Cake and Eat It Too is written in the spirit of the 80-minute MBA. The perfect book for all business readers who are looking for an accessible introduction to the topic: short, concrete with tangible benefits clearly defined.

* Customer experience is the most important battle ground for competitive advantage
* A short introduction to Service Design in the spirit of the 80-minute MBA
* Accessible to a wide audience of general business readers
